Picture this: Governor Greg Abbott heard about Planned Parenthood’s organ harvesting scandal and immediately opened a multi-faceted investigation into the legality of their operations in Texas. What did Wendy Davis, his defeated gubernatorial opponent, do? She made a donation to Planned Parenthood.

The backlash to Davis’ publication of her $100 donation (in honor of PP president Cecile Richards’ birthday) may have come as a surprise in light of the fawning praises she received as a national media darling prior to her defeat.
Although she was beloved by the abortion movement just two summers ago, supportive responses to this latest act of solidarity with the anti-Life cause were few and far between. Instead, the overwhelming irony of Davis’ donation – just one day after the organization’s horrifying candor about fetal organ harvesting came to light – is the subject of most responses:
.@wendydavis $100 will go a long ways in helping @PPact to harvest baby organs and to fully justify the reason for your electoral defeat.

@wendydavis Kinda cool that @CecileRichards gets a birthday. In an ironic way. I mean.

“@wendydavis: I'm in! https://t.co/ohJ3DroHKE”. Just when you thought @wendydavis has set the low bar, she eclipses herself.

Hey @wendydavis if you donate $500 you get your choice of a liver or a heart.

Perhaps one day, politicians will realize that aligning with Planned Parenthood gets them nowhere fast in the Pro-Life state of Texas.
